What would it mean, in practical design terms, to make one household carbon neutral? We’ll discuss this at the next Dott 07 (Designs of the Time) Explorers Club meeting on 11 July. The event takes place at the Robert Stephenson Centre in Newcastle, UK. Many of the greenhouse gas emissions that come from residential households could be reduced if we made our houses more efficient, generated our own energy, switched suppliers, or simply switched off devices. But cumulative energy use is invisible, and alternative insulation and energy solutions are offered by multiple, fragmented suppliers and are therefore hard to procure. The evening will explore the design components of a whole systems approach to the challenge. Leading the discussion will be Chris Vanstone from RED at the Design Council, and Stephen Dormer from the Eaga Group. Tickets are free but you need to reserve by emailing Beckie Darlington firstname.lastname@example.org by the end of this week.
